The Best Idea Since the Shuttlebus
Kevin Salwen on Travel
Has anyone else noticed that traveling might be easier now than pre-Sept 11, 2001? Sure, the security checkpoint is still a pain to navigate (to the point where ex-Steely Dan lead singer Donald Fagen has a song on his upcoming CD about a guy who falls in love with the female security agent who wands him.)
But it has never been easier to get a boarding pass. And with that in hand, I've been arriving 30 minutes ahead of time at off-peak times (when I can get through security quickly) and still am making my flights.
Today's USA Today reports that hotels are increasingly getting into the act, adding airline kiosks for guests to print boarding passes. We have grown accustomed to printing them out at home, of course, but few of us travel with printers.
